Hi, I’m Tal Davidson. I develop quantitative investing strategies which are based on deep academic research. I’m not the ordinary finance guy. I’m more of a technology geek, working as a computer engineer in one of the largest tech companies in the world. I’ve been learning and experimenting with investment strategies for the last 15 years.

"I usually ignore advice from other traders, especially the ones who believe they are on to a “sure thing”. The old timers, who talk about 'maybe there is a chance of so and so,' are often right and early. - Ed Seykota

Formerly: John Galt.
The majority of my capital is invested in Dividend Growth stocks. I also enjoy searching for the next big thing.
To grade my investment decisions: I've usually been able to "buy low", but I've often sold out too early. I'm firmly against losing money. I have no problem with building up my portfolio slow and steady. After the 2008 Financial crisis I've been much more macro focused instead of being more of a stock picker.
I love a good stock debate, looking at the best bull case, best bear case and picking my side. I believe in doing your own due diligence! I enjoy reading finance/stock market books among other things.
Love traveling, and always have my eye out for the next investment idea when at home or abroad.

My name is Mike McNeil and I’m the author of The Dividend Guy Blog & The Dividend Monk along with the owner and portfolio manager here at Dividend Stocks Rock (DSR). I also have a service on Seeking Alpha's Marketplace called Dividend Growth Rocks, aimed at investors who are interested in both income and capital growth from dividend stocks. I earned my bachelor degree in finance-marketing, own a CFP title along with an MBA in financial services. Besides being a passionate investor, I’m also happily married with three beautiful children. I started my online venture to educate people about investing and to be able to spend more time with my family.
I started my career in the financial industry back in 2003. I earned several promotions along with a good pile of diplomas. I had lots of fun working with clients in private banking for half a decade, but thought I could do more with my life.
In 2016, I decided to take a leap of faith and left everything behind to travel across North America and Central America with my family. We drove through nine countries and stayed three months in Costa Rica before returning home. This was an eye-opening adventure that led me in 2017 to quit my job in the financial industry and pursue my dream; helping others with their personal finance through my investing websites.
You just found the reason why I quit my suit & tie job!
